The most important news about smartwatches as of late was about Apple’s iWatch released last week. But we haven’t forgotten about another anticipated smartwatch, the Motorola Moto 360 and we want to share with you some of its most important features.
The Moto 360 was first announced at a Google conference in June and it was presented as a flagship smart device for Android Wear. With its metal case and rounded face, the Moto 360 smartwatch was released earlier this month.
Some would say that the Moto 360 is the best smartwatch on the market right now, but as with many smartwatches, this too doesn’t come with an outstanding app. There are many who wonder why would anyone need a smartwatch when you can do basically the same things on a smartphone.
One of the most distinctive features about the Moto 360 is its round face. Most of the smartwatches available have that square or rectangular face which doesn’t make them look like watches. The fact that the Moto 360 has a rounded face makes you think that you’re looking at a watch and not at some miniature smartphone or something. The stainless steel case and leather strap make it look solid and not cheap. The thickness can be a bit of turn off (more than 1 cm thick) because it rises off the wrist and it looks a bit weird. It’s a good thing that the Moto 360 is fairly lightweight (less than 2 ounces). The screen has a low resolution and it shows the time like one of those plastic watches we used to have as kids.
The Moto 360 does what all smartwatches do: tell you the time, keep track of appointments, act as a pedometer and monitor the pulse rate.
The Moto 360 has 4GB of storage and you can get it for $250.
